NEW! The Merry Poppins are branching to Utrecht!

In May 2022 a new choir will open in Utrecht, you can sign up to it already, and you’ll be invited for a free tryout. 

The name of our choir is of course a wink to my favorite musical movie – I must have watched it at least a dozen times. It keeps inspiring my love for singing.

Repertoire

We sing (mostly new) arrangements of key songs of classic musicals such as Hair, Grease, Fiddler on the Roof, and – as you can hear in the recording below – Mary Poppins. We performed this song – Sister Suffragette – at Café De Pianist, in June 2019.

Free Tryout in amsterdam

Free tryout in utrecht – starting may22!

Concerts

We perform at least twice a year, including an end-of-the-year concert every June.

In november 2018 we performed in Café Belcampo, at a brunch concert with another choir: Hebrew Groove. In June 2019, we performed at Café De Pianist in Amsterdam (see recording below).

In January 2020, we performed at the renowned Paradiso Korendagen.

Our bad-ass work ethic

We are an amateur choir but dedicated to making this a great vocal ensemble. You don’t have to have a lot of singing experience to join. As long as you are dedicated to learn and put in the effort. It’s hard work but a lot of fun! As Mary Poppins sang: ‘In every job that must be done / there is an element of fun / You find the fun / and SNAP the job’s a game’

The perks of being a Poppin

Why is being a Merry Poppin the best thing ever? Being a part of The Merry Poppins will give you the opportunity to have fun singing in a group AND become a better singer.

  • Weekly rehearsals with a group of dedicated singers from all over the world. You learn about vocal technique and blending in a group.
  • Performing in two concerts a year (at least)
  • 65% discount on one private singing lesson , which will improve you as a (choir) singer. On more lessons, you get a 10% discount.
  • New arrangements of classic musical songs that I wrote especially for this choir (such as in the video below: I recorded and dubbed my own voice for soprano, mezzo and alto)
  • 50% discount on all my paid online courses
